the art of being a Wolf by Anee Menatory
I know well Anne Menatory, his book is although for the splendid photographs (from Gianni Guadalupi).
In fact, all the text is copied in the books of her father : Gerard menatory, THE French Wolf Expert (dead in 1998), and founder of the largest park with wolf in the world “Les loups du Gevaudan” : http://www.loupsdugevaudan.com/

Another book that I have read that has wolves in it and is about the wolves is 'The Sight'. This book is fictional in nature but shows definate wolf behaviour and dynamics. Also, it actually has the wolves express their feelings about certain situations like the death of a pup and pack member.
I have reread The Sight so many times I think I'm crazy. :mrgreen: It's my most fav book ever! Also I've seen most of the documentaries everyone's mentioned...not to mention the Balto trilogy. And there is a movie about wolves that is still being made..don't get too excited because you'll have to wait a few years before it's even close to being released. :P Here's the site if you want to know more.

Like someone already said "Spirit Of The Wolf" is a very good book. Having a book like that is great. It tells everything about wolves... EVERYTHING. :D

Speak of the devil, I just bought the "Wolves at Our Door" book by Jim and Jamie Dutcher. Goooood read.

I also have their documentary, "Living with Wolves" recorded on my DVR. :mrgreen: And I've seen some other wolf documentaries on various channels, but the 2-hour long "Living with Wolves" is my favorite.

I enjoy all the documentaries mentioned...

A book that I love is
Brother Wolf: Forgotten Promise, by Jim Brandenburg... The forward in it is likely one of the most poignant pieces of writing I've ever read.

I own the book (its rather ratty from years of use) but the mentioned forward can be found here:

jim brandenburg also took the photographs for Arctic wolf, a book by dr. mech who is like the most famous wolf person around. I`ve tried to find brother wolf for years and I have yet to get my paws on it!

Candace Savage wrote another wolf-related book, titled "The World of the Wolf." I found it in my school library. Check it out!

I don't mean to be rude or act like a moderater here, but could we get a bit back on topic? I believe the OP was originally asking for non-fictional sources. There are plenty of fictional wolf book threads (I think there are like 4 on the front page alone) where they can be posted.

Like I said, mean no offense, but I'd like to know more about non-fictional stuff here. :)

Back on topic: I remember seeing a documentary about this man who did have captured wolves (I'm not sure why) in a large encloser. There was the alpha pair who had their pups, and for some reason the daughter took over, becoming the new alpha female with her father, while the mother I think died. The daughter died later on along with some other wolves in the pack due to a disease that he tried to help them with (he put the medicine in the meat) but they refused to eat it, so they died. Would anyone know the name of the documentary? I think it was on Discovery channel at one point. I do apologize if my description is too vague. I've just been wanting to see this documentary again, even though it involved captured wolves. There -was- a reason why they couldn't go out into the wild, I just forget. That, and it seemed the show was done like in the early 00's, but the actual filming took place earlier.

Woo. Sorry for that big block of text! If no one can read it, I'll try to fix it.
